Whether as a Pokémon, a Force ghost, or a cable news pundit, we can expect to see a lot more of Donald Trump.
In recent weeks reports have surfaced that former-president Trump has been telling people that he could somehow be reinstated to the presidency, possibly as soon as August of this year.
But for as much fanfare as those stories have gotten — given that they're based on absolutely nothing — it's worth noting that they aren't really a new issue. Back in January, Donald Trump was addressing a gathering of his followers at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland for the final speech of his presidency, and dropped some similar hints.
Preparing to leave behind the position he called his "greatest honor and privilege," he told his followers that they are "amazing people," and that he will "always fight" for them. He went on to wish Joe Biden's administration "great luck and great success" to a tepid response, but when he told them "we love you, we will be back... in some form," the cheers were raucous.
It was as though he'd announced the return of the McRib, but marinated in that Rick and Morty sauce and doused in Shamrock Shake. You could almost hear the crowd salivating for another chance to slurp some processed food-style slurry from Trump's infected teet.

Is it good for them? Hell no. They eat it up anyway. But the question remains, what "form" is Donald Trump likely to take when he returns.
Sadly, like an after-credit scene that teases the sequel to the worst movie ever, that speech whet the appetite's of the MAGA crowd without giving them much to go on. It may be some time before we find out what "form" Donald Trump intends to take.
Until then, the best we can do to prepare ourselves is to look at his options and consider which direction he might choose. With that in mind, these eight scenarios represent the most likely directions for Donald Trump to make a comeback.
